VETERAN defender Viliame Toma has been ruled out of the Shop N Save Nadi team for the first match of the Pillay Garments Champion versus Champion series against Ba at Prince Charles Park this afternoon.

The experienced defender is suffering from a groin strain. However, there is some good news for the home team with hardworking midfielder Lekima Gonerau being given the all clear by the medical team.

Gonerau picked up an injury while representing the Blues club in the Kriz Signs National Football Championship last month.

Nadi team manager Kamlesh Sami said the team was well prepared. He said they were looking forward to the challenge against the 17-time CVC winners.

"Ba will go into the series as the favourites having such a decorated record in the competition," he said.

"We have yet to win the title. The team management has worked on the combinations.

"It is now up to the players to do their part on the field. We are calling on the fans to come out in numbers to support the boys."

The match is scheduled to kick off at 4pm.
